Fluoroscopy-induced chronic radiation dermatitis masqueradin
Chronic radiodermatitis is a rare complication of fluoroscopy-guided procedures. The diagnosis of fluoroscopy-induced chronic radiation dermatitis is challenging because of its rarity, late insidious onset, and close clinicopathological resemblance to morphea.

Published in the Indian Journal of Pathology and Microbiology, the authors report two cases of fluoroscopy-induced chronic radiodermatitis following cardiac procedures to highlight the clinicopathological features.

The diagnosis relies on recognizing the characteristic clinical presentation of well-demarcated, rectangular- or square-shaped indurated plaque with depigmentation, telangiectasia, and ulceration located on the scapula, back, or axilla; supported by the histological identification of radiation fibroblasts in a sclerotic dermis.
